Connie Booth

Connie Booth, Constance Booth (born 1944 in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA) is an American writer and actress best known for her appearances on British television, especially her work with her ex-husband, John Cleese.

She made her first appearance on British television in 1968. She appeared regularly in the British television series Monty Python's Flying Circus. She also appeared in Monty Python and the Holy Grail as the woman accused of being a witch. She co-wrote and co-starred (as the maid, Polly) in the series Fawlty Towers (1975-79) with her then husband, John Cleese.

Booth and Cleese were married from February 20, 1968 to 1978 when their marriage ended in divorce. They have one child, Cynthia Cleese (born 1971), from their decade-long marriage.

Connie Booth subsequently appeared in dramatic roles on British television and her ability to switch back to her American accent proved useful in several roles, including Mrs Errol in a BBC adaptation of Little Lord Fauntleroy and Miss March in a dramatisation of Edith Wharton's The Buccaneers.

She ended her acting career and now practices as a psychotherapist in London.
